I had to look up Beaux Frères, but was happy to see that it's 20 minutes from my home. Mrs. Wineland drives thru Newberg everyday going to work. I'll stop off next time I'm down there. I take it it's good stuff? Close to Adelsheim Vineyards, another nice one. Can't swing a dead cat without hitting a winery south of Portland. Napa and Sonoma get all the hype but the Willamette Valley is a great place if you like a Pinot. I've been on a quest for years to find a great Pinot sub $10. I'm beginning to realize it's a futile quest.

Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.

Pinot, Pinot, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Pinot, Pinotr, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.

Well, since I've spent a ton of time in the actual Chatham County I won't comment on how good they are because I'll sound like a "homer", but Napa and Sonoma can have their press because where I live was voted one of the top 10 wine destinations in the world and goes relatively unnoticed, which is why good values still abound:

I have to say my favorite wines recently have been from Paso Robles. A stones throw from Monterrey.

I'll be in Fremont mid February but didn't see any happenings at Golden State Theater. Got tickets for ALO @ The Fillmore. Never been there so excited to see the historic site. I imagine it's like our Paramont Theater (Schnitzer).

Paso Robles has some great stuff - and now they have a venue and tied into winery there (AEG - Warfield/Coachella/Jazz & Heritage Folks(:

Nothing at Golden State in near future - we went bust (venue still there, but not my tema) and lost tons of cash, relationships, etc. It sucks but - nothing ventured, nothing gained. So ti goes. As Chuck sang, c;set la vie--
